if you didn’t manage to snag one at the
show, it’s still available to you. In any
case, it’s not the seller that the Mustang
or the MiG-23BN are, and it can be assumed that it will be available for a few
months yet. The same can be said for
the MiG-21MFN (Weekend, 1:72nd).
This kit deviates a bit from the norm of
Weekend kits, thanks to the inclusion of
Among the kits that are still available
through the Afterparty offer is the Jules Verne sub, which is a resin fantasy
submarine in 1:35th scale, and was the
souvenir kit for participating ship modellers this year. It garnered some interest, and there have been requests for
it. There are still some 40 of these kits
available, so, again, if you want one of
these, you’d probably better not wait.
Also available through the Afterparty
event are another two of these souvenir kits, dubbed Ponyrex 1 and Ponyrex
2. These are the good ‘ol ‚Velorex‘ kits
in 1:72nd scale, painted up in the style
of two P-51D Mustangs. Our e-shop will
also be offering the admissions P-51D
Mustang in 1:144th scale.
Sometime over the course of next
week, we will be holding an auction of
several models. These will be one each
of a P-51D-5 and MiG-23BN, and three
of the Excalibur P-51Ds in 1:48th. The
first two will be autographed by the entire Eduard team from this year’s E-day,
and the three Excaliburs will be signed
INFO Eduard - October 2019
by the pilot of the only flying Mustang
in the Czech Republic, Miroslav Sazavsky.
Turning our attention over to accessory items, the best selling piece at
E-day was the ZOOM set for the P-51D-5.
We had a total of forty on hand, and all
sold. That is not a new item for October,
but it does point to the attractiveness of
everything P-51, and also to that of the
Among the October accessories, the
Mustang sets logically dominate, weather it is the big set covering the cockpit,
or the small wheel sets with the various
tread patterns, two sets of propellers,
the complementary photoetched set,
inner and outer surface TF masks, or
the bronze landing gear legs, made with
a new casting technology. These are
very nice, by the way...little jewels. Incidentally, these are made with jewelry
developed technology. It should also be
remembered that there were three sets
released in August already, including
the aforementioned LööK sets.
There are also accessory items being released for that MiG-23BN. These
include Brassin Kh-23M ground attack
missiles and their associated pylon.
Other items of note include two sets for
the new Hummel from Tamiya in 1:35th
scale. There is a list of new sets in 1:32nd
scale: the I-16 from ICM, F6F-3 from
Trumpeter and the F-104G from Italeri.
Likewise in 1:48th, there are new items
for Bobcat’s Il-28T, A-6A Intruder from
Hobby Boss, the H-34 (Gallery MC) and
our own MiG-21bis. That latter item, by
the way, has become a best-seller! In
1:72nd, we have some new sets for the
Bf 109F-2 from Revell (ex-Zvezda) and
the Tornado GR.1 (Italeri). There are also
six new BigEds and one new BigSin, the
latter for the Fw 190A-8 in 1:48th scale from us. For ship modellers, we have
prepared the first of two 1/350th scale
sets for HMS Cornwall from Trumpeter.
Of note are the four new decal sheets in
1:48th scale. Two are for the Tempest,
and two are for the Mustang. All complement the ProfiPACK items of those
models for better coverage in the case
of the Overtrees items. All are printed
using new technology and new printing
equipment, as are all new sheets that
are included in October’s releases. Our
new decal sheets were met with much
success and positive response at E-day.
So, I won’t keep you anymore from
your reading of today’s newsletter, for
which I wish you an informative and enjoyable read!
